Some recent talks

During lockdown 2021, we heard from Gareth Manning, Senior Gardener at West Green House in Hampshire on how the house, build by Hangman Hawley and once owned by Lord McAlpine, was saved from destruction in 1990 when a caretaker, returning home from a convivial night at his local, moved a wheelie bin.

The garden, re-created by Marylyn Abbott the Australian garden designer is now known as the Opera Garden. It combines neo-classical with contemporary and celebrates all four seasons with its stunning planting.

We’ve enjoyed several Tender Shoots Garden Network Zoom talks during lockdown. The Network was formed in 2020 to help gardeners, new and experienced, to keep in touch.
